  • Mosque Of Oklahoma Beheader Receives Visit, Praise From Obama Administration

    However you parse the story, it boils down to more bad optics for an administration whose actions have given rise to more than its share. Who can ever forget the president’s hitting the golf links within ten minutes of eulogizing beheaded American journalist James Wright Foley?

    The topic of his latest miscue is another beheading. On Saturday, the Obama White House dispatched its director of the Department of Homeland Security’s Center for Faith-based & Neighborhood Partnerships to Moore, Okla., to praise the Muslim community there. Moore, in case the name has already slipped from your personal news radar, is the town where Alton Nolen, a Muslim convert, beheaded a former co-worker last month.

    According to Chuck Ross of the Daily Caller, Director David Myers spoke to congregants at the Greater Islamic Society of Oklahoma City, the mosque Nolen attended.

    “Your service is a powerful example of the shared roots of the Abrahamic faiths and how our communities can come together in shared peace with dignity and a sense of justice,” said Myers, reading from a letter penned by President Barack Obama.
